1. Instructors are free to get out their own demonstrations from the storage areas in CHEMP 130A. (See the demonstration area map for what is stored in each location). There is no deadline for requesting demonstrations that instructors are willing to get out for themselves but we ask that they still sign up on the demonstration website (http://www.phys.vt.edu/demo-bin/demoform.cgi) so that a log of demonstration usage can be kept. Just add in the comments that you will get it yourself. If instructors choose to get out their own demonstrations they should place them on a cart in CHEMP 130A when they finished being used. The demonstration manager will reshelf the demonstations.
2. For instructors who would like to have their demonstration prepared by the demonstration manager please sign up for demonstrations by NOON on the day before they need to use them. Sign up is done at: http://www.phys.vt.edu/demo-bin/demoform.cgi. The demonstration manager will set up the demonstrations on carts in CHEMP 130A (the demonstration room behind the lecture hall CHEMP 130). For demonstrations that have been requested before noon on the day before, the demonstration will be set up by 4 PM. The equipment will be checked to verify that it is functioning properly. Thus, the demonstrations will be ready all that evening and the next day for practice by the instructor if they would like to do that. The instructors will be responsible for rolling out their own demonstration carts and returning them to 130A. The demonstration manager will reshelve the demonstrations after they are used. If instructors find that they need additional support in this area please contact Mark Pitt or Josh Peebles.
